I think someone may have answered this for you but jus incase they did not

 

  1. in msword press “altf”
  2. arrow down to options and press enter

There will be several group options

 

Arrow down to ease of access and tab until you here sounds and check the box and tab over until you here the ok  button.

 

I know in the older versions of word you had to download a sounds file from  Microsoft.

 

I am not sure if you have to do that anymore.

 

I hope this helps you.

These sounds are enabled by turning on the Office Sounds.  In Word, go to the File menu, then options.  When the dialog opens, arrow down to the Ease of Access options, then tab over to where all the setting choices are.  The first option is a checkbox to enable the sounds.  Check if this got turned off somehow.

According to the manual, the "white Easy-Switch" keys are F1, F2, and F3. Hold one of them down for a few seconds, then press either FN+I for iOS, FN+O for Mac OS, or FN+P for Windows or Android,then pair your device according to that operating system's standard pairing procedures. To switch among paired devices, just hold down F1, F2, or F3 for about three seconds, and connection should take place.

I suggest you do a little more playing with various e-mail clients before making a comment like this one.  Any e-mail client does not come to have the embedded user base that Thunderbird has if it's "really substandard."

There's a ton of tech press material out there about the reasons for "splitting off" Thunderbird from Firefox, which has happened, but its home still remains under the Mozilla organization.  It's far from dying, too, in fact it's picked up steam since this organizational split.

All of the above being said, there are quite a few different e-mail clients out there, but the two that are really commonly used and have good accessibility on a consistent basis have been MS-Outlook and Thunderbird.  If you would still like to use Windows Live Mail 2012 it still works just fine for POP and IMAP mail, and I downloaded the final full installer for Windows Essentials 2012, of which WLM is a part, just before it was pulled from Microsoft's site.  You can download it here ( https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B98uELZbPFnOSF8xTzhfYnh4WUU ) , if you so choose.  It was and remains quite accessible under JAWS and NVDA.  I haven't tried it with Narrator.

Re: accessibil password generators

Angel
 

Another suggestion, which has worked for me over the years, regarding pass words.  It is particularly useful, as older people using these pass word generators might suffer memory problems, as does my elder sister.  Who now has to have her son assist her with the simplest of  being able to access sites.  Which require the use of pass words.  I use a single pass word for all my accessing.  With different prefixes or suffixes.  Particular to the site which I wish to access.  So, should one discover my pass word, it would be most difficult to determine the individual prefix or suffix I have chosen for that site.  If this list required a pass word, for example, I might use my individual pass word, plus the suffix MJfwDS.  The first part being the initials of the list itself, the DS being the initials of the first owner of the officially endorsed list by Freedom Scientific, Debbie Scales.  Who would figure that one out?  Yet, it would be something I would easily remember.  As Debbie Scales performed, for we blind Jaws users, such a fine service.  Seeking and discovering all sorts of free to use programs.  Which were accessible for us blind individuals to utilize.  To make our lives easier.  So we wouldn't have to find them ourselves.

If you are happy with whatever you have for WiFi you can always just buy a 5-port or 8-port desktop switch. Plug it into one of your 2 ports and bingo, you have 5 or 8 more and no setup is required, also it’s a lot cheaper than a really good router which has the number of ports you want.

Modem should have nothing to do with a screen reader.

If anything, modem compatibility has more to do with your iSP. I’ve got a surfboard 6193 with 16 down channels and 32 up channels. I bought it and have it working with my Spectrum 200 MB down service. This is a really great modem, but it wouldn’t work with AT&T for example. Jaws has nothing to do with it.

I just gave Spectrum its mac adress to ping it and good to go.

Modems are more or less plug and play.

Now, if you’re talking about a router, As long as you can at least access the web interface, then you should be fine. I used to have a TPLink Archer triband AC router, but recently upgraded to an Eero mesh router for better coverage. I access this device through my iPhone though.

One inexpensive way is to buy used software through a reliable vendor. I used bonanza.com. You will find prices from $20 to $40 for the full office suite, the higher of the range for Office 2016, the low end for Office 2010. I suggest avoiding the listings where the description includes reference to needing to register the product by telephone. That route works, but it is a bit of a pain, and for the same or a few dollars more, you can get one that authorizes in the regular way, entering the code when prompted.

Good luck,

Hi all,


I have to switch to a new mail program. I'm now using Thunderbird but I think it's a really substandard system. The fact that Mozilla cut it loose sounds like a resounding vote of no confidence. I'm thinking of switching to Outlook if it isn't too expensive. Does it work well with Jaws 18? Do I have other choices?


Thanks for your help,


Re: Good cable modem router

 

If you are happy with whatever you have for WiFi you can always just buy a 5-port or 8-port desktop switch. Plug it into one of your 2 ports and bingo, you have 5 or 8 more and no setup is required, also it’s a lot cheaper than a really good router which has the number of ports you want.

I realize that, however, I just don’t want to add a Router that has a stupid interface like I’ve seen with the Asus Router. I need to have more than just two Ethernet ports, that’s the only reason I need the Router.

Modem should have nothing to do with a screen reader.

If anything, modem compatibility has more to do with your iSP. I’ve got a surfboard 6193 with 16 down channels and 32 up channels. I bought it and have it working with my Spectrum 200 MB down service. This is a really great modem, but it wouldn’t work with AT&T for example. Jaws has nothing to do with it.

I just gave Spectrum its mac adress to ping it and good to go.

Modems are more or less plug and play.

Now, if you’re talking about a router, As long as you can at least access the web interface, then you should be fine. I used to have a TPLink Archer triband AC router, but recently upgraded to an Eero mesh router for better coverage. I access this device through my iPhone though.

I’d like to hear anyone’s opinion on what cable modem router works in conjunction with JAWS. Boy, I bet this gets some differing opinions (smile).

Another inexpensive option is an Office 365 subscription. As long as the subscription is active, you get access to the newest version of Office. Most Office 365 subscriptions, including Office 365 Personal, include Outlook.

Best,

One inexpensive way is to buy used software through a reliable vendor. I used bonanza.com. You will find prices from $20 to $40 for the full office suite, the higher of the range for Office 2016, the low end for Office 2010. I suggest avoiding the listings where the description includes reference to needing to register the product by telephone. That route works, but it is a bit of a pain, and for the same or a few dollars more, you can get one that authorizes in the regular way, entering the code when prompted.

Good luck,
Tim Ford
